Final Blow for CWIP Legislation
CWIP has been the subject of several previous articles and blog entries, both here at the Show-Me Institute and elsewhere, so I won’t use this entry to rehash the issue.
KMOX reports that controversy over proposed CWIP legislation, which would have supported the construction of an AmerenUE nuclear power plant expansion, has reached its final episode today. State lawmakers did not round up enough support to pass the constitutional amendment that would have been needed to move the new plant construction forward. Altogether, this was a not-so-surprising conclusion for a bill surrounded by a stream of publicity that, many people felt, raised more questions than answers.
